Supplies Needed

  • Pumpkin
  • Glowz – Glow-in-the-Dark Spray Pain by Krylon
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Pumpkin Face Design with a Cricut Machine or cut by hand
  • Card Stock Paper



  1. Spray paint the pumpkin with Glowz and let dry.
  2. While the pumpkin is drying make your pumpkin face design with a Cricut Machine or by hand on Card Stock Paper.
  3. Heat up the glue gun when the pumpkin is dry.
  4. Apply the hot glue onto the pumpkin face design and press it onto the pumpkin with firm pressure for a few minutes.

You can even change it up by only spray painting part of the pumpkin with glow-in-the-dark spray paint and play around with different face designs. Either way it will look pretty awesome on your front porch at night!
